Teen Talk Tuesday (7/22/14 Edition)

It’s time for another Teen Talk Tuesday! Read on for more info. on our favorite new and forthcoming teen titles from St. Martin’s Griffin!

COMPLICIT by Stephanie Kuehn
Morris Award-winning author Kuehn’s second novel about fifteen-year-old Jamie and his sister Cate. Cate just was just released from juvi and is coming after him! COMPLICIT has already garnered an impressive three starred reviews, including this one from School Library Journal: “COMPLICIT ensnares readers from the first page with its surprising twists and revelations. Recommend it to fans of psychological thrillers.”

PUSH GIRL by Chelsie Hill & Jessica Love
An inspiring, real, and fresh young adult novel about how life can change in an instant by Chelsie Hill, one of the stars of the Sundance Channel reality show Push Girls, based on her own experience of being paralyzed. “This is an emotional story with elements any teen reader can relate to, primarily the search for one’s own identity. Readers will be inspired and moved by Kara’s amazing journey.”
Booklist

KALONA’S FALL by P.C. + Kristin Cast (The House of Night Novellas #4)
The fourth installment in the powerful new House of Night Novellas mini-series tells the mysterious story behind Kalona, the winged immortal who fell from the Otherworld.

RECKONING by Kerry Wilkinson (The Silver Blackthorne Trilogy #1)
In a far-off future, years of war and famine have eliminated all technological advancement, returning society to a feudal system where all teens must take “the Reckoning”—a coming-of-age test to determine their place in society. “False starts, red herrings, and narrow escapes keep the pace moving briskly and the resolution a big question mark right until the end. In a crowded market of apocalyptic YA fiction, this title stands out.” — School Library Journal
